A loan of $725 helped to construct a greenhouse to grow tomatoes.

Fridah's story

Fridah is a resident of Murang’a in central Kenya, where she has been practicing mixed farming for three years. Her current farm produce includes beans, maize, cabbages, and potatoes, all being sold within the local market. She is married with two children, ages six years and one year.

Fridah has requested a loan of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to help her put up a greenhouse where she will grow tomatoes. She says a greenhouse will improve her farming income due to consistent production and good quality of produce, which will fetch better prices.

She adds that farming has been her only source of income, and she hopes to improve the living standards of her family. Fridah says lack of capital is her main challenge.
